1. , those groups completely or almost completely evaluated), the figures in the last column are gross over-estimates of the percentage threatened due to biases in the assessment process towards assessing species that are thought to be threatened, species for which data are readily available, and under-reporting of Least Concern species. The true value for the percentage threatened, lies somewhere in the range indicated by the two right-hand columns. In most cases this represents a very broad range.

Where information is available, species have undergone rapid declines in abundance. Severely threatened species include the Australian endemic species, Harrisson’s Dogfish Centrophorus harrissoni and the Southern Dogfish C. uyato with declines of >99% in two decades due to commercial fishing (Cavanagh et al. 2003; Graham et al. 2001). Deep-sea data collection is challenging, and the SSG is encouraging the precautionary approach to management as a matter of urgency. 19 Damba Mipentina Paretroplus maculatus (Critically Endangered) endemic to Madagascar, has undergone severe declines due to severe fishing pressure, impact of introduced inavsive species, and habitat destruction.

This approach can also be scaled down to the river basin level, providing biodiversity information to guide both the site selection of water development projects, and the minimization or mitigation of any subsequent impacts. The assessment also provides an essential baseline for long-term monitoring purposes. An additional benefit of the regional approach is increased regional capacity for biodiversity assessment through training in assessment tools such as for the Red List, and through direct involvement of regional scientists in the assessment process.
